EXCLUSIVE: Matt Cardona Reveals If He Would Be Open To WWE Return
Speaking exclusively on Straight To Hell
Matt Cardona has cemented himself as a professional wrestling star over the last year and the self-proclaimed Deathmatch King is a featured performer in IMPACT Wrestling, GCW, and the NWA, among other promotions.
Prior to his current run, Cardona spent 15 years with WWE, performing for Vince McMahon's company from 2005 until his release in April 2020, and the former Zack Ryder admitted on Straight To Hell he would answer the phone if WWE called him.
"If Vince McMahon called me, or Bruce Prichard or John Laurinaitis called me, of course I would pick up, of course I would have a conversation. Why wouldn't I? I'd be lying right now if I said I never want to wrestle at Madison Square Garden or I never want to wrestle at WrestleMania again. Anybody who says that is f*cking lying, quite frankly," Cardona said.
"But I'm not doing what I'm doing now hoping to get back. I don't do what I do thinking, 'Oh man what do I have to do to get back to WWE?' or 'What do I have to do to get AEW to look at me?' No, I'm doing me. If those opportunities present itself, great but the state of pro wrestling is it's on fire right now. You don't need to be in those two companies...I'm trying to prove you don't need it."
Cardona also discussed his Game Changer Wrestling run so far and the former GCW World Champion thinks he will one day be the Vince McMahon of the promotion.
